JK Rowling: Keep that Pinch of Salt Handy!

J.K. Rowling has updated her site with a message regarding the recent spate of rumors about the possible death of a character in Half-Blood Prince. In no uncertain terms she writes:

Well, here we go again! The gossip, the non-stories, the ever-wilder speculation...

Please remember that allegations of 'leaks' concerning deaths in 'Half-Blood Prince' are very easy to make. Any comment I make on such rumours would be a spoiler, so I'll just repeat: keep those barrels of salt handy. Speaking of which...

I have been alerted to the fact that I am supposed to have posted in the 'comments' section of a couple of different fan sites recently. I never post on fan sites and it is important that you all know this, because the last thing I would want is for any of you to be misled or otherwise manipulated by somebody posing as me online. JKRowling.com is the only place I ever post. Lest you think I'm protesting too much, please ask yourself whether I would really want to reveal my email address on a fan site. Love you all though I do, I don't really want to wake up tomorrow and have to download 21,956,038 new emails, all demanding the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.

So there you go everyone. As we said, there are bound to be many of these rumor reports, such as the betting story from a few days ago...so keep that salt handy! Only 50 more days to go!

UPDATE: Jo has also updated an entry in "The Rubbish Bin", under "Excessive Additives" where she addresses a rumor that she said that Half-Blood Prince is her best book yet. Click here for her answer.
